How to proceed to change your locks after a burglary?

The first thing to do is to call in a professional locksmith in an emergency. He will be better able to equip your front door with a security system that is resistant to break-ins. Before starting the work, don’t hesitate to compare several quotes and choose the one with the best quality/price ratio. If you are a tenant, you should be able to ask your trustee or landlord to find a real professional. In any case, following a burglary, it is imperative to have an A2P certified system installed, if only to respect the clauses of your insurance contract.

If you know the basic rules of lock installation, you can also try to do it yourself. In any case, the expense of replacing a lock will be less if you take the initiative and choose equipment that is designed to last, and is more resistant to break-ins, than a conventional cylinder.

Which lock should I choose to protect myself from burglary?

Several studies show that 90% of all break-ins are committed through the front door: this is mostly due to the weakness of the cylinder in the lock. Thus, the person who tries to commit a theft will mainly try to weaken the lock, which is likely to be broken by a blow at the fixing point.
As mentioned above, systems validated by the A2P standard should be considered to reinforce this area of the entrance door. Also, a 3-point surface lock is recommended. It is also possible to install a door lock in addition, in case you wish to keep a standard single-point surface lock. Have keys made that are protected for life, non-reproducible except upon presentation of a property card. Of course, the more elaborate your equipment, the more the purchase price of the lock will be affected.

And for maximum door protection, choose the super armor.
